Education for Life

Summer School

We have been running our British Council Accredited residential Summer School for over 35 years. Boys and girls between the ages of 10 and 17 visit us, either in small groups or as individuals, for any number of weeks during the course. Students come from all over the world, creating a uniquely diverse and friendly atmosphere, which is cherished by students and staff alike.

The courses are constructed carefully to give each and every student the opportunity to improve his or her English whilst, at the same time, taking advantage of a range of sporting and social opportunities, in the form of activities and excursions. By living and studying together, the course encourages students to speak English with one another and to experience one another’s cultures. Each year we invite local young people to join in the activity and excursions programme.

The Brooke House College Summer School is our own course. A large number of the Summer School teachers, activities and residential staff work at the college during the academic year and so are experienced. They create an atmosphere of friendliness within the college, with their primary concern being the care and welfare of the students, many of whom are away from home for the first time in their lives.

A measure of the success of the Brooke House College Summer School is that many students return to the course year after year to repeat the Summer School learning experience time and time again. We hope that you will join us.
